What People Say
About Play Sense

Do you have questions?

If the last couple of years have taught us anything, it’s that teachers are both essential and undervalued. The pandemic turned our traditional education systems upside down and showed us that we aren’t adequately preparing the children in our care for the future by doing things the way they’ve always been done. 

Teachers are the architects of the future. What a privilege and an awesome responsibility! And at Play Sense we are passionate about reimagining early childhood education and inspiring teachers to provide the best foundation to build future legends. To this end, we have launched an ECD Master Class Series – Teaching Future Legends. 

Play Sense will be releasing monthly ECD masterclass ranging in a variety of topics, all with meaningful insights and practical learnings for teachers to implement in their preschools.

Topics have been tested and researched with the ECD sector and range from dealing with practical toddler behaviour, to working with neuro-diverse populations in the classroom, to bringing playfulness back into the classroom – and much more! Scroll through the Masterclasses on our website to see which topic talks to you!

These masterclasses have been developed by our Play Sense Co-Founders,  Occupational Therapists and early-years experts Meg Faure and Lara Schoenfeld as well as other guest lecturers.
